Texas A&M outfielder Tyler Naquin was selected by the Cleveland Indians with the No. 15 pick in the 2012 MLB Draft.

Texas A&M's season may have ended on Sunday, but the sad feelings of defeat have quickly been followed by joy for some Aggies who were selected in the first round of the 2012 MLB Draft.

Outfielder Tyler Naquin was selected by the Cleveland Indians with the No. 15 overall pick. The pick surprised many, as he was projected to go toward later part of the first round.

Naquin led the Aggies with a .380 average on the season, along with three home runs and 49 RBIs. In the field, his throwing arm has been lauded as one of the best. He also showed some speed with 21 stolen bases in 26 attempts.
